Liguria is divided into 48 districts, each with one of the 48 surnames of the Ligurian nobility. The Ligurian nobility only gives their surname to an area, they do not represent or rule it. It should be noted that the capital of Liguria is technically Genova, but since Genova has been a Metropolitan Duchy since the federation, the government is run from La Spezia.
Liguria's main industries are steel, shipbuilding, and international shipping. The coastal regions have much tourism as well, and some there are plastics and perfume manufacturing factories around La Spezia.
